The finished Aiblinn is damp & blocking, see it next post. Here it is, a row of bobbles short of a full cowl. You could say the same about me this week.I thought I'd take a break from the cowl on Saturday, and, as you can see? Bit of a color rut . Cowl yarn on the right. On the left, Lumpy Bumpy yarn double stranded with some Andys Merino and an afternoon of primo knitting time for this hat (which I now realize is identical to this hat I've had queued for-evah) until almost done, I realized it was all wrong. Too thick and bumpy on the brim. Flashback to a hat of my mom's in the early 70's cringeing the teenage me. Not. good. Gone!
I'm back on the [scarf] love train now, with this yarn.
I call it mushroom to point out its utter lack of hue but Cascade says Walnut. Dull , bulky , cabled, winging it-- and enjoying every minute. Should be ready for viewing in a day or so.
One last scarf , it's not knit but maybe you're feeling sew crafty? The backstory: I shot for these folks last summer, in a swanky photo set apartment. No one lives there, it's rented out just for shooting, you move the furniture and decor around to suit your images. Here's one we shot in the kitchen- I'm not sure I'd be happy trying to get food stufflets out of the nooks & crannies but loved the poured concrete rustic countertops for the photos. Anyhoo, I was thrilled to see this, featuring my assistant Heather sitting in as model. Extra points if you can find Heather in action in Mason Dixon: Outside the Lines. It's like a craft world Wheres Waldo, but with much better makeup. No, wait! Let's make it a contest. (edited later)Leave me a comment with the page #, or, just leave a comment (like, duh, won't the answer be in every comment anyway? I'm not so good at the contest running!) and I'll put you in a drawing to win a set of Harmony DPN needles size 2 and a skein of this sock yarn. (I know, it should be something uber-Mason-Dixony but there are indeed sock patterns in the book ). Enter till noon Saturday 12/20.
